    ... ge in some continuing subject. In applying his general hylomorphism to soul-body relations, Aristotle contends that the following general analogy soul: body: : form: matter: : Hermes-shape: bronze If the soul bears the same relation to the body which the shape of a statue bears to its material basis, then we should expect some general features to be common to both; and we should be able to draw some immediate consequences regarding the relationship between soul and body. To begin, some quest...

    ter>Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites What are friends for and how can a friendship be tested? By behaving altruistically, would be the most common answer and by sacrificing one's interests in favour of one's friends. Friendship implies the converse of egoism, both psychologically and ethically. But then we say that the dog is "man's best friend." After all, it is characterized by unconditional love, by unselfish behaviour...

    The framework of choice for the contemporary philosophers of mind is physicalism, a position that integrates the study of mind within the 'scientific' human knowledge regulated by the laws of matter and energy. In this paper, I will provide arguments that support the incompatibility between two different theories of mind, namely mind-brain identity theory (IT) and folk psychology (FP) on logical grounds. The first part of the essay will familiarize the reader with the basic concepts, definitions...

    Consciousness is understood in a variety of ways. In one belief, a person is conscious when awake, but unconscious when sleeping or comatose. Yet people also do things requiring perception and thought unconsciously even when they are awake. A person can be conscious of their physical surroundings, pain and even a wish or fantasy. In short a creature is conscious if it is aware of itself and that it is a physical and emotional being. Consciousness is a psychological condition defined by the Engli...

    THE MIND-BODY PROBLEM The issue of personal identity is focused on conditions wherein a person at one time is the same person at another time (Wikipedia). The analysis of personal identity gives us a set of necessary conditions as to the identity of the person over a period of time.

    Descartes Descartes relation of the mind and the body is circles around three topics: mind body dualism, proofs for the real distinction between mind and body, and two way causal interaction. Descartes in Meditation II concludes that he is in essence a thinking thing (res cogitates), and that it is possible that he exists without a body. He recognizes, however, that to conclude from this that his mind is really distinct from his body would be fallacious. The Stoic paradox of the masked man illus...

    In my readings of the two chapters from the book, Body and Mind, written by Keith Campbell, I explored my mind to Central-State Materialism and Functionalism. Both these states have differences and similarities between them. Starting off with Central-State Materialism; then, I reflected my readings, and then viewed Functionalism and stated my readings. The main point of this paper is to give a few supporting details on the similarities and differences Central-State Materialism, and a few points ...

    Eliminativists Eliminative Material Eliminative Materialism Eliminativist's believe that there is something fundamentally mistaken about the common-sense conception of the mind. Elimin-activists suggest that for man to move forward in his understanding of the mind he must drop part or all of this common sense conception in favor of one which does not use notions such as belief, experience, sensations and the like. The rationale for this suggestion is that these notions are fraught with conceptua...

    Functionalism and Physicalism While acquiring knowledge on the topics of Functionalism and Physicalism, I ran across many disagreement between the two. Interestingly, those disagreements gave me an impression of different sides arguing with their own support from their own theories. As if an Arabian and a Roman were arguing about whether the number eleven is an Arabic number or a Roman number. Though, as I read more and more of the readings (especially Putnam's), I started to see a pattern that ...

    In Hylomorphism Hylomorphism in General In De Anima, Aristotle makes extensive use of technical terminology introduced and explained elsewhere in his writings. He claims, for example, using vocabulary derived from his physical and metaphysical theories, that the soul is a first actuality of a natural organic body (De Anima ii 1, 412 b 5 - 6), that it is a substance as form of a natural body which has life in potentiality (De Anima ii 1, 412 a 20 - 1) and, similarly, that it is a first actuality ...

    For Materialist Theory Materialist Theory For many centuries, people have pondered upon the question if there is a relation between what we think and what we do physically. Our physical brain gives way to a mind, full of thoughts and processes, but what interaction do the two have? Materialism is a way that people consider the relations between mind and matter to be inseparable. We are physical beings and our mental reactions are just by-products of a material process. Materialism can be summed ...

  • Identity Theory Vice Versa
    852 words
    The identity theory, also known as reductive materialism, is one of the views Churchland uses to describe mind-brain correlation. Churchland believes that the mental states of the body are one and in the same (double aspects) with brain states. They are the same because the biochemical actions produced in brain states (release of serotonin and acetylcholine) have direct interaction with the mental states (mood disorders such as depression). With the help of psychological and physiological eviden...

    Jeff Extra Credit Assignment # 1 a. 1) The main hindrance for dualism is to explain how something non-physical (mind, soul) is associated with something physical (body). According to dualism, the association between the person (mind, soul) and the body is so intimate that many people falsely believe they are indistinguishable from their bodies. Descartes says its because they have never had the experience of being without their body. The opposing belief of dualism is physicalism, which states th...
